3.5/5  rDev -12.1%

A- big foamy ivory white head that lasted a long time and left pretty decent lacing. Clear, amber, honey gold. Most appealing.

S- clean, malty, bready, (slightly) spicy.

T- toasted malts, biscuity, caramel. Very, very pleasant.

M- light, smooth. Excellent balance.

O- very nice. A solid brew. Never used to be a big fan of Marzen/Oktoberfest, but starting to enjoy more and more. Would have again (and again) and definitely recommend.

500 ml bottle, the beer pours a mostly clear dark gold/amber color with about an inch frothy off-white head that sticks around a while. There's also a lot of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like caramel and bready malt, honey, and light earthy hops. Taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but with the addition of a bit of apple and dark fruit. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's smooth and easy to drink with moderate carbonation. I thought this was a good Oktoberfest brew, I'd buy this again in the future. $3.49 a bottle.

The pour produces a clear, copper-colored body with a plenitude of fine, rapidly rising carbonation bubbles; tall, rocky, fluffy, white head (4.25). Nice malty, fruity aromas; caramel with mild melon and strawberry scents (3.75). Warm grain flavors with a soothing hop bitterness (4.0). Medium-heavy body; smooth and fairly dry finish despite the underlying malt sweetness (4.0).

A deep and satisfying German fest beer. Flavors and aroma are well-rounded and complement each other nicely. Couple that with a dynamite appearance and you have one appealing and satisfying beer. Highly recommended.
